Art BINGO 

The Art Connection is the organization 
through which RCC has received 50 
pieces of free original free art in the past 
and will receive 30 more this year. They 
are having a Bingo fundraiser in April. 



Winners can walk away with their own free art. 



The Art Connection is hosting Art BINGO, an event where participants play Bingo to win original works of art to 
encourage new and continuing art collectors in the Boston area. We are seeking submissions of 2D, portable artwork 
not exceeding 36" in either direction. Jurors Leonie Bradbury, Director/Curator of Montserrat College of Art Galleries, 
and Carolyn Muskat, Tamarind Master Printmaker, will select 12 works to be included in our fundraiser. One game will 
be played for each piece, and winners will leave with original art! Art BINGO will be held on April 20th. Artwork 
donations support the work of The Art Connection, which enriches the Boston-area community by placing works of art 
at social service agencies. 

Learn more about The Art Connection at www.theartconnection.org
